Digital OilField (DOF)/Integrated Operations (IO) Fundamentals for Oil & Gas Professionals

This course is intended for everyone who desire to get a broader understanding of Digital Oilfield (DOF, or equivalent terms), its definition, elements, and its many applications particularly in the Upstream Oil & Gas Industry.

The course provides a high-level comprehensive history of the application of digital technologies in the Upstream E&P world, from the single-task technology (i.e. for data acquisition and/or monitoring) to the workflow automation and then to the very complex integrated operations. It also gives some insights on the technologies/tools being used in modern DOF projects. Arguably, the understanding of Digital OilField concepts and implementations significantly varies from place to place, from company to company due to the nature of their technicality and pragmatism. Hence the course presents a more in-depth coverage of the most common DOF elements, as well as the DOF implementation how-to experiences learned from the various DOF projects around the world.

The participants are expected to complete the training class with a better understanding of the Digital OilField concepts and how DOF will continue to have a massive impact in the E&P world for years to come.
